The Scampi 30 class was designed by Peter Norlin and built by Albin Marine to compete in the then popular Half Tonner class. Optimised to meet the rules her distinctive hull shape makes the class instantly recognisable. A popular design for those competing in the class the Scampi 30 proved to be very capable. Lighter than her stablemate the Albin Ballad she delivers better sailing performance to windward. With a practical interior layout and plenty of storage they now offer cruisers a rewarding small cruiser capable of quick offshore passages.
In the current ownership for the last 2 decades, FRITE has been professionally maintained throughout this time with continuous upgrading and replacement of equipment. Offered for sale with a complete cruising inventory she is wintering at Ardfern Yacht Centre and is available for viewing by appointment.

Designed to compete in the half-tonner class the hull shape of the Scampi 30 was optimised to the rules, as was the fashion at the time. This optimisation lead to the distinctive hull shape with the hard knuckle in the topsides visible from mid-ships aft.
